Lim Tze Peng writes the words of 秋登萬山寄張五 or Autumn Ascent of Wan Mountain for Zhang Wu by Tang Dynasty poet Meng Haoran (689-740.) The full poem reads: 北山白雲里,隱者自怡悅。相望始登高,心隨雁飛滅。 愁因薄暮起,興是清秋髮。時見歸村人,平沙渡頭歇。天邊樹若薺,江畔洲如月。何當載酒來,共醉重陽節。 Translated, it means: That northern peak enveloped in pearly clouds, brings jubilation to my reclusive heart. I attempt the climb with a mind to survey the land from up high, while my heart soars with the swans. Twilight is the harbinger of gloom, but then again late autumn is a time for joyous merriment. I often observe from a vantage point the villagers returning home, watching as they recline on sandy beaches at the place of the ferry crossing. The horizon is filled with trees as small as a shepherd’s satchel, and gazing downward I view the banks of the shore in the moonlight. What harm could befall me if I were to bring fine wine to the mountain, to gaily celebrate the Double Ninth Festival.
